Hello everyone,

I am the researcher and contributor for Poppy Places, Palemrston North (http://poppyplaces.nz/). I am currently researching the Awatapu subdivision and the 28th Maori Battalion individuals which the streets are named for as commemoration of their service overseas. I am looking for any and all information which anyone can supply about the following individuals: Major Wi Patene Anaru, Lieutenant George Katene, Sergeant E T M Pitama, Lieutenant Colonel H Ruha and Major M P Te Punga. I have already completed articles for Brigadier George Dittmer, Lieutenant Colonel J C Henare, Captain Wiremu Te Tau Huata and Captain M Wikiriwhi, but any more information would be greatly appreciated to add on.

If anyone can provide any information on these individuals it would be greatly appreciated. You can contact me via [email protected]

Thank you,

Evan Greensides
